U.S. Rep. William Delahunt blew nearly $560,000 in campaign cash last year - much of it on lavish meals and a family-friendly payroll that includes his ex-wife, son-in-law and daughter - stoking speculation the Quincy Democrat is emptying his war chest and wont seek re-election.
Nickolai Bobrov, who is married to Delahunts daughter Kara, has raked in $47,732 since landing on the payroll as the congressmans campaign manager in July, including a $10,000 payment that month marked retroactive for consulting services April-July, according to campaign finance records.
Bobrov also is listed as treasurer of Delahunts Campaign for Change political action committee, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
Kara Delahunt, who recently bought a $620,000 Milton manse with Bobrov, pocketed hundreds in campaign cash as a freelance photographer, records show. Delahunts PAC also paid her $421 for photography services last month.

Cool. Let’s hope he keeps doing this.
Banana, meet Republic.
First reader comment following article:
“I wonder if Delahunts ex-wife gets alimony... or I wonder if she gets a campaign check instead of an alimony check... nah, couldn\’t be.”
Maybe he should cough up some money for the “Amy Bishop Defense Fund?”
Hey, using the Russian mafia to launder money seems to make sense...........
News you’ll never see from the Globe-Pravda.
